Hockey History


Hockey History Matters

In sport, learning the rules, playing the game, and improving skills are essential to success. Serious coaches and players, though, need more.  Truly understanding the sport requires that coaches and athletes grasp its origins and history.  The storied experience of a sport’s coaches, players, and teams through history is what brings the game to life.  Understanding the mistakes and achievements of those who coached and played the game, the lessons they learned, and the business of the game are what really enable today’s coaches and players to “get” the game, what they’re striving for, and why it matters.
